Liverpool have reached an agreement to sign RB Leipzig defender Ibrahim Konate. The highly rated defender will sign a five year contract with Liverpool and will be expected to wrestle off first team football from injury prone Joe Gomez.
The Reds have triggered his €35m release clause and have already subjected the 21-year-old to medical test which he passed.
His arrival will be massive news to Liverpool who have endured a turbulent season with their key defenders.
Injuries to the club’s most reliable defender Virgil van Dijk and Joe Gomez instantaneously ended Liverpool’s title hopes and consigned them to chasing top 4 football.
The football adage is now true on Liverpool part, ‘Strikers scores you goals but defenders win your trophies”.
